A collage of good Peanuts stuff, direct from the strip!
1 August 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

How can I rate it at anything other then 10 stars?

It's the adventures of the gang, plus a whole lot more! I had not seen this in so many years I can just make out two small segments, that aren't that clear now, twenty six years later.

But I recall, how the quality in this is good stuff!! This gang of characters is definitely not gonna let the kids down. It won't let the adults who remember 'childhood', watching Charlie Brown do his thing 'down' either. With Snoopy flying, that means that, Charles daughter, was becoming a pilot. Obviously his children were close to his heart, that's what made his life's work that much better, for all of us.

Yes this is yet another shining example of many that, Schulz had great quality in his work and loved telling stories through the eyes of the 'Lil Folks'. As for miss 'Othmar' well, it was always just "Waa Waa Waaa Wa." (****)
